  2. FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL.

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL. MOST DIESEL OPERATORS NOW CONSIDER PERIODIC OIL ANALYSES AS THEIR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN MAINTAINING EQUIPMENT; THIS METHOD IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN INCONVIENT. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION OF ...

  3. Highway Capacity Software in Portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) Format

    SBC: Catalina Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) has, for the past 10 years, been the principal tool for applying the analysis methods of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). The HCS has been DOS-based with a very limited user interface. With a number of new research materials being produced, and an approved plan in place which leads to publication of an HCM 2000 and accompanying software, there is a strong op ...

  4. Response-Based Parameter Estimation for Determining Unknown Bridge Foundations

    SBC: Infrasense, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Evaluation of bridges for vulnerability to scour or other potential sources of damage requires knowledge of foundation conditions beneath piers and abutments that are often unknown. INFRASENSE proposed to develop and demonstrate a response-based parameter estimation method (RPEM) which will address the need for a simple, low-cost system for unknown foundation evaluation. The RPEM system is based ...

  7. RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS.

    SBC: Tribo Materials Dev. Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN WEAR CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH LUBRICATION, ALTHOUGH THE LUBRICATORS THEMSELVES ARE A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-WEAR COATING WHICH CAN BE APPLIED PERIODICALLY TO RAILS TO REDUCE WEAR AND TO ...

  9. MEASURING RESISTANCE OF INSECTS TO BT TOXINS WITH HYDRATEABLE MEAL PADS

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the summer of 1998 over 2.8 million acres of farmland in the Southern U.S. was planted in genetically engineered cotton expressing a gene derived from the bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This Bt gene codes for production of a protein that is toxic to some of the most important lepidopteran pests of U.S. cotton. The future expansion of this new technology on more cotton acreage and in ot ...

  10. STATUS INDEX.

    SBC: AGRICULTURAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE DIRECT ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSING OF WATER STATUS IS EMPLOYED TO YIELD A DAILY INDEX OF CROP WATER STATUS. THE SENSORS ARE CALIFBRATED AGAINST A STEM DIAMETER MEASUREMENT TO YIELD A PREDICTIVE, QUANTITATIVE DAILY INDEX. THE INDEX IS TRANSFERRED FROM THE FIELD TO THE GROWER'S HEADQUARTERS OR PICKUP TRUCK BY TELEMETRY. THE SYSTEM HAS LOW CAPITAL AND LABOR INTENSITY. IT IS AMENABLE TO MOST CROP T ...
